What is Whois?
It's the service that permits you to know the availability of a domain and identify the owner in real time.
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) requires all domains to show the real data of the registrants and other contacts publicly, permitting them to be queried by anyone without need to authenticate or contact the registrar that manages the domain. It could be used by anyone for unintended purposes such as: sending spam, identity theft, telemarketing campaigns, privacy violation, etc.
Note that in the absence of real data displayed in the domain's Whois, it could lead to lose the domain, as required by ICANN.
You can see the data of any domain using our website, click here for it.

Whois Privacy, before and after
How does the Whois Privacy work?
At the moment you activate the service we replace your data with ours. Your e-mail address will also be replaced to an e-mail address with this format email@example.com, but you'll still receive the e-mails as we resend them to the e-mail address associated to your domain. By displaying our data we act as intermediaries in postal and fax communications. We'll resend you all received documents from third parties via e-mail, without additional costs.
Extensions that support Whois Privacy
Due to different regulations in each extension, some of them don't permit the use of this type of service and must show the real registrant data. Visit the page of each TLD to check the availability of this service.
